EstroDIM is a targeted formula that provides the synergistic benefits of cruciferous vegetable metabolites, namely DIM (diindolylmethane) and I3C (Indole-3-carbinol) in a single capsule to support normal estrogen metabolism and promote prostate and breast health.
The formula contains cruciferous vegetable metabolites, which come packed with multiple health benefits, many of which are believed to come from glucosinolates, a group of secondary metabolites. This is particularly true when consuming cruciferous vegetables that are shown to have a positive effect on prostate and breast health, such as broccoli, sprouts, and cabbage.
When we chew crush or cut these vegetables, the body’s cells release myrosinase enzyme which hydrolyzes glucosinolates into other compounds. For example, glucosinolates from brussels sprouts and broccoli convert into I3C when these vegetables are eaten, which can be further converted into other compounds, such as DIM, with the help of stomach acid. A wide range of cellular activities related to hormone health has been directly linked with these compounds.
Hormones play a pivotal role in every function of the human body. They act as the chemical carriers of the messages sent between the cells throughout the body, especially tissues like the prostate and breast, which are more sensitive to them (the hormones). The most fundamental message passed on from cell to cell via hormones is to grow, divide, and multiple, which is one of the reasons why hormones are so essential in tissue repair and human development. Therefore, maintaining hormones in balance and making sure that the body can process hormones optimally is a primary parameter of human health. To ensure proper hormonal balance, it is essential to support the synthesis, metabolism, and detoxification of estrogen. That is where cruciferous vegetables metabolites come in. They work together with a single goal – to decrease hormone overload and keep cells healthy.
Recent research on DIM and I3C metabolites has shown that they could support prostate, uterine, cervical, and breast health. Taking that into consideration, each capsule of EstroDIM includes doses of both DIM and I3C in single daily doses, which make keeping hormones at bay much more convenient and easy than if having to take multiple tablets or other types of products to balance hormones.
I3C - It is found in many cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, kale, cauliflower, and broccoli, and is converted to several different metabolites, one of them being DIM, which have been shown to affect cellular activities and metabolic changes for improved health outcomes. For instance, it has been evidenced that I3C not only supports healthy estrogen metabolism-related cellular function but can also (1) inhibit the activity of estrogen receptors and (2) compete for binding sites as a means to moderate estrogen signals.
DIM – It could enhance the proliferation of both healthy cellular activities and healthy cells. This plant and phytonutrient indole is present in numerous cruciferous vegetables and can improve the potential for greater antioxidant activity while supporting the formation of healthy estrogen metabolites to promote beneficial estrogen metabolism in men and women alike.
The formula contains vitamin E, as well as I3C and DIM.
Besides these primary compounds, the formula also includes: Silicon dioxide, stearic acid, calcium silicate, magnesium stearate, cellulose, microcrystalline, and natural vegetable capsules.
It is recommended to take one capsule on a daily basis unless your healthcare practitioner directs otherwise.
